With Sympathy Card

Hi Everyone

At last we have reached the weekend - hurrah! And as tomorrow sees the start of the football season (oh deep joy!) at least someone will be preoccupied and I can creep off to Crafty Corner!

Today we had the sad news that Brent's boss passed away after suffering from a brain tumor that they were unable to operate on. Of course I had to make a card for the family. I was intending to do this tomorrow but impatient me had an idea in my head and so I had to make it tonight. Here it is - I decided to do White on White, only ever done this once before but I think it turned out ok.

What do you think? I'd appreciate your comments as I think its the first time I've had to do a sympathy card.

Right, I'm off now for a fairly early night up early for swimming. Watch this space for some postings from Crafty Corner over the weekend - Hopefully!

Bye for now
